Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda to Play Solo Set at Reading & Leeds Festival
Travis Scott is also among 80 new additions.
The 2018 Reading & Leeds Festival announced their second wave of names Wednesday (March 28), adding 80 acts to the already-stacked lineup, including Linkin Park co-founder Mike Shinoda.
Shionda recently released his first solo EP, Post Traumatic, which expresses his reflections on the life of bandmate Chester Bennington. Reading & Leeds will mark one of Shinoda's first performances since Bennington's death last summer.
Fall Out Boy, Kendrick Lamar and Kings of Leon will be headlining this year's Reading & Leeds festival. Among the other artists on the genre-spanning schedule are Post Malone, Panic! At the Disco, Dua Lipa, Brockhampton, Diplo and Wolf Alice.
Shinoda joins the roster with a smorgasbord of other new additions, including rapper Travis Scott, U.K. alt-rock veterans The Kooks, Nashville indie rockers COIN, soul-wrenching songwriter Lewis Capaldi and England's own up-and-comer Rex Orange County.
